This time she used another anti-abortion speech as her hate vehicle. But as always, after throwing a few punches at others, it was really just all about Sarah Palin.
She brought her carnival road show to Jacksonville, in order to speak for the pro-abortion group Heroic Media, a kind of social networking approach for the anti-abortion crowd.
The invitation for the event said “One Amazing Night” but apparently Palin just wasn’t amazing enough. First they had to find a smaller venue due to the low ticket sales. That didn’t help, so they finally marked the ticket prices down. Palin wound up speaking to only about 500 people. In spite of pundits on cable who have been doing their best to pretend that Palin is still relevant because a few of her endorsed candidates won primaries this week, real people just aren’t buying it. She is just about as relevant as someone off the street closing their eyes and throwing darts at a board with various candidates names on it. You’re bound to get one or two correct that way.
But some things never change. Palin certainly hasn’t. She did her usual, tiresome red-meat routine, and she apparently still doesn’t read, given her one-liners and jabs:
Palin called President Obama “the most pro-abortion president ever” and said:
“The biggest advance of the abortion industry in America is the passage of Obamacare,” Palin said. “Elective abortions have nothing to do with health care. It’s about ending lives, not saving lives.”
Obama-bashing? Check. Facts? Nope.
“Unfortunately your Republican governor,” Palin began before pausing. “I don’t know if he wants to be one or is a Republican anymore.”
Our Governor, Charlie Crist, is not a Republican now. What, has she been living under a….? Even so, it wouldn’t have hurt to come out from under her rock long enough to check. Surely one of her pals from FOX-GOPTV could have done a fact check for her? Oh, wait….scratch that. It’s FOX.
Back to the bashing:
“Your governor, he decided to veto this pro-life bill,” she said before drawing laughs by sarcastically pointing out that Crist still calls himself pro-life. “He forgot that when to comes protecting the sanctity of life actions speak louder than words.”
That’s quite a diss to the man who once told a reporter when asked that “Palin would do a great job as President.”
After that, the remainder of the speech was all about Palin. How she made the right “CHOICE” by having her son after an ultrasound showed he would have Down syndrome. How her daughter made the right “CHOICE” when she became pregnant at 17 while proving that abstinence doesn’t work. (No mention how handy the result is though when it comes to making big bucks off the child in publicity, reality shows, and “Dancing With The Stars” afterwards.)
Speaking of making “the most” (wink, wink) of those “CHOICES” she also said this:
“What Bristol and I have been through has not changed my opinion, but it has changed my perspective,” she said. “I understand what goes through a woman’s mind when she is presented with less-than-perfect circumstances.”
I don’t think she understands “less-than-perfect circumstances” any more than her daughter does. Sarah and her daughter were able to make a “CHOICE.” It’s just that they feel no one else should be allowed to do the same.
Those who want to make a CHOICE, but who aren’t Sarah are just a “cackle of rads.”
